Excellent stay at Valley View Barn

5 of 5
From the initial stages of enquiry to the weekend itself property owner Sandy was nothing but helpful and offered excellent customer service throughout making the whole experience enjoyable and memorable. Even though the property looked amazing from the photos, it exceeded expectations! Such a brilliant location with stunning views, very well-maintained, clean, modern, spacious, full of all the amenities, well equipped, the list goes on. (it felt like a home away from home!) I had booked the weekend as a surprise for my husbands 30th Birthday and there were 13 of us friends in total plus 8 month baby and wow were they impressed (including the little one he loved his cot & high chair that was very kindly included by Sandy) We are definitely keen to get a date in the diary for our next weekend, I think we would like to make it an annual trip! Although we didn't venture out much Sandy very kindly left leaflets and information of things to do in the area which we will definitely take advantage of next time along with the BBQ and use of 14 bikes! Kudos to Sandy and the team, keep up the fantastic work and I hope to return in the near future! Thank you again. Trishna Daji and friends x

We booked the property in order to visit the NEC (8th Feb.), and more specifically because of its relative proximity to Darley Mill where my daughter got married on Feb 10th For the price, we expected decent quality and we got it. We departed on the morning of Feb 12th entirely satisfied Colin Cater
